Beyond Meritocracy: What Comes Next?

Rivka Press Schwartz examines what lies beyond meritocracy for  the United States and for American Jews, who benefited from the rapid advance of meritocracy’s rules in the latter half of the twentieth century.

The concept of meritocracy is that people rise or fall in society based upon their merit, rather than by accidents of birth or background — but now the very idea of meritocracy is under scrutiny for the harm it causes and the racial advantaging and disadvantaging it encodes.
